3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy light orange / yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy with some pineapple and some other tropical fruits. There is also some spicy and peppery aspects. Medium / full body with lots of carboantion - very frothy with some soft fizz. Tast is fruity (pear, pineappel & others) aspects up front on the start. The fizz hits and then the finish brings fruits, spicy hops and earthiness. A very enjoyable beer I have experience many times and will enjoy many more.

A very slight head when first poured, but despite being fairly fizzy and well-carbonated, there was no residual head. Very sweet and fruity aromas and flavors of apple, pear, citrus, and pineapple. Some flavors of yeast and wheat hiding underneath. A great brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Light golden color with a nice and foamy white head. Aroma is rather sweet and spicy with a hint of pepper, orange, and coriander. Flavor has a light and spicy hint to it as it begins that goes to a warm and malty middle and a dry and smooth finish. Warming at the end, but hides the alcohol well.

Pours Yellow Ocre with a light white head. It’s aroma is my favorite part a big sweet citrusy malty earthy aroma very complex very nice. Taste is slightly more mellow. Citrus qualities (lemon, grapefruit) and nutmeg nice hoppy works into a sour finish nice mouth feel a little watery after tast holds the sour citrusy taste for a long time.
